Blake Matthew is a Leo award winning composer who thrives on the experimental process. He is passionate about working on thought-provoking, deeply human, twisted gut-wrenching and hypnotic stories that leave a lasting impression on the viewer. This Vancouver-based composer’s love for film began when he was a youth, but his focus on scoring was sparked during his studies in Music Technology at Douglas College in 2014. With 9 years of experience, he has established himself as a skilled professional in the film and video game industry.
In 2018 Blake scored his first feature film, Infeccion which premiered in the FICG at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Infeccion was released in cinemas across Latin America on October 31, 2019. In early 2019 he scored 2 feature films (After the Rain, Funhouse) which premiered in Kyrgyzstan and Sweden in 2020. Blake has been nominated for 3 Leo Awards (Best Music in a Motion Picture & Best Music in a Short Drama), winning one of those for Best Music in a Motion Picture for his score in Infeccion. More recently, Blake has collaborated with Gigi Saul Guerrero and Raynor Shima of Luchagore Productions on their CryptTV project called Mistress of Bones and the feature film anthology Satanic Hispanics. Throughout 2022, Blake was the lead composer and sound designer for the blockchain video game called Tiny Colony under the alias of Dr. Corpse.
Blake is a member of the Screen Composers Guild of Canada and has apprenticed under Veteran Canadian film composers Terry Frewer and Daniel Ingram. His strong focus on collaboration with directors is what makes his music an integral part of storytelling.
